Lodge Cast Iron

Lodge Cast Iron

If you’re looking for quality cast-iron cookware, cult-favorite Lodge is a no-brainer. (It’s our runner-up for best overall cast iron skillet in testing!) Not only does the brand offer quality, lasting products that our experts stand by, but they also create fun, festive pieces to elevate holiday cooking and baking year-round. Most recently, the brand launched two limited-edition pieces of cookware in honor of Dia de los Muertos, including a Sugar Skull Skillet and Skull Mini Baking Pan. In collaboration with Mexico-city based artist Lourdes Villagomez, these pieces include unique designs and shapes, which are perfect for baking traditional Day of the Dead foods.

According to the company’s site, Lourdes wanted to create a piece of cookware that honored the tradition of exchanging colorful sugar skulls on the Day of the Dead, and created the skillet as a “reminder to celebrate the richness of life and hold on to stories of the past.” She also added, “Mexico is a country full of tradition and roots, and it’s worth it to know about these stories.” To her, that means creating cookware that brings Day of the Dead celebrations to people everywhere.

Created with Day of the Dead in mind, this pan is equipped to bake up to 6 skull-shaped mini cakes and is equipped with silicone grips that are both dishwasher- and oven-safe up to 425 degrees F. (The company also states that the grips are not intended to protect hands from heat.) You can also use it to mold sugar skulls for your Day of the Dead party.

The 10.25-inch skillet is pre-seasoned with 100% natural vegetable oil, so it is ready to use right away. It includes a silicone handle cover, which the brand claims protects hands up to 550 degrees F. Stove-, oven- and grill-safe, this skillet is great for searing, sauteing, baking, broiling, braising or grilling.
